Beyonce who was the star of the night arrived late to the Grammy Awards at the Arena in Los Angeles.

  • Updated

It has been a big and great year for music that includes major releases like Harry Style's 'House Party', Bad Bunny's hot boy 'Verano', Adele's 'Easy,' and Beyoncé's 'Unbreakable Soul'. It's now time to find out who will require a U-Haul to take all of their awards home from the 65th annual Grammy Awards.

The Grammy Awards 2023, which is being presented by "The Daily Show" alum Trevor Noah, will be broadcast on CBS and streamed on Paramount+. It was previously live-streamed for two years owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. A lot is happening this year at the Grammys this year. Here's the list of winners.

Beyonce Leads the Way

Beyonce made Grammy history with most wins ever Twitter

Beyoncé, the "Renaissance" curator, is leading the race place with nine nominations and has already tied the record for the most Grammy wins ever with 31. Kendrick Lamar is right behind with eight nominations.

Another early winner was actress Viola Davis, who narrated her memoir, "Finding Me," and won the award for Best Audio Book, Narration and Storytelling Recording, achieving the coveted EGOT designation.

This year's ceremony boasts an attractive line-up of performers that included names like Jay-Z, Beyoncé's husband, DJ Khaled, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, John Legend, Fridayy, Bad Bunny, Mary J. Blige, Brandi Carlile, Luke Combs, Steve Lacy, Lizzo, Kim Petras with Sam Smith, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, and Chris Stapleton.

Beyonce who was the star of the night arrived late to the Grammy Awards at the Arena in Los Angeles but by that time she had already tied the record for the most Grammy wins ever.

However, CBS didn't think of waiting for her to show up and went ahead with the show.

Nevertheless, it was one of the all-time diva moments when Viola Davis, who had already made history by becoming an EGOT by winning a Grammy for Best Audio Book, Narration, and Storytelling for the audio book of her memoir, "Finding Me," handed the Best R&B Song trophy to a non-attendee Beyoncé while she was still snarled in L.A. traffic on her way to the Arena.

That said, Grammy Awards 2023 had a lot more apart from Beyonce who created history on Sunday night. Here's the full list of winners.
